Harvard and Unreal Expectations

Instapundit complains about academic standards at Harvard:

RIGOR: Only 23% of Classes at Harvard Have a Final Exam.

I don't see the problem here...I mean isn't making in to Harvard the accomplishment that really matters? At this rate you could give away the diploma with the acceptance letter, but then Harvard wouldn't get to collect 4-5 years of dowry payments....

Exams only introduce risk to the continuing legend of Harvard's superior academics. It is almost like asking the Editor of the Harvard Law Review to actually write articles. Why provide evidence to ruin the illusion?
